Super Bowl 45 at Sea!

Football fans aboard all Princess Cruises ships around the world will have the opportunity to enjoy a super tailgate party at sea this Sunday February 6, with prime viewing of the match-up between the Pittsburg Steelers and the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV. The "Big Game" will be broadcast fleet wide to passengers, including viewing on the ships' 300-square-foot super-size "Movies under the Stars" screens.

Passengers will be able to follow the action between the AFC and NFC Champions, plus see the halftime show with a performance by the Black Eyed Peas. Fans can enjoy the game with an array of tailgate treats including specially prepared chicken wings, pizza, pigs-in-a-blanket and other game day "munchies," plus beer specials.
I haven’t done a Super Bowl at Sea yet but have caught a few regular season NFL and NCAA football games aboard ship. It was pretty neat having the buffet available but the cost of adult beverages hurt!

I should take a look at booking a special interest cruise like the NCAA Final Four or NASCAR’s opening race.
